ACW 1/72 recasts

Posted by Traveller1865 on 08 Feb 2017, 13:33

Hello!
Me and sculptor Leonardo Toricini have been collaborating on a project lately, conversions of ACW 1/72 casualties. Below you can see some of the completed (and almost completed) work so far:

Feel free to comment and suggest improvements. If anyone wants to be part of this and help share the cost of masters please contact me, if we're more people on this project we can get more poses and limit the costs. These figures will be cast in metal by Hagen Miniatures in Germany but will ship anywhere.

These casualties looks very good. Seen them on Facebook too. Used to make my own casualties and the old Esci sets were very good for this!

Made a little ACW-scene a couple of years ago:

Thank you!
Indeed they are... ;-) of course the outcome of normal conversions depends much from the base figure quality and position, which could be enhanced and even improved in several ways with further resculpting work... :thumbup:

The resin recasting needs an extra previuos work but then allow several easier changes of positions... sometimes even almost with no need of any retouch!
In some cases, especially to avoid repeating the same poses too much in mass scenes with a lot of figures, and for casualties or other missing poses, it can be a good alternative to create quickly several cheap conversions from just few figures! ;-)

And here 3 new conversions... still from the same bases, and more coming soon!

Really nice figures Leo! :thumbup:

The poses remind me of my first wifes cooking,
and my strange reaction to it.
I`m glad she left before killing me :-D BB

Thank you my friends!
This time a dramatic bayonnet fight... this double figure scene particularly inspired me, and some figures are particulary suitable for such conversions! ;-)
